The Cutest Seahorse Craft for Preschoolers

My daughter has been making a lot of sea crafts for kids at her preschool the last few weeks and she absolutely loves it! Seahorses seem to be her favourite (aren’t they everyones favourite?!) So I thought I’d continue the fun at home with this super cute seahorse craft. Can’t draw seahorses? Nope me neither, but don’t panic as I’ll be sharing where to get this sweet template from.

Why is this seahorse craft for preschoolers so good?!

Tearing paper is great for preschoolers, firstly because eek you’re not normally allowed to tear paper and secondly because it’s good for fine motor skills. It’s a great craft to talk about what you’re doing too – I asked my daughter each time what colour paper she wanted to use next so it’s great for reinforcing learning with that.

Tissue paper also makes a great sound when you scrunch it up and its a fun texture to play with too, my daughter loved telling me what she was doing in each stage – ‘roll it, roll it!’ She has a mild speech delay so anything that encourages talking is good with us!

The making of this seahorse craft is pretty simple – just print off the template above, then cut it out and glue on the scrunched tissue paper. I think this would look great in a preschool as part of a larger sea collage!
